The things you need to do for yourself… and my London getaway

I’ve always had a list in my head with things I want to do, places I want to see, people I would like to meet…. It’s a list in progress, as I keep adding new things all the time and I believe this the way it should be. It gives you a clear idea of what you want, a purpose, the motivation to make your dreams happen, and a great satisfaction when you can check something on your list. I think I should start writing down this list, as I feel it will become more like a plan, than just a wish list. I make lists about everything, short time lists, but never a life time one. Yes, I’ll do that tomorrow.

Another thing that I really believe in, is that we should not let a month past by without doing something for our soul. It doesn’t have to be big, it can be a movie, meeting with friends, visit a place, a museum, buying something you really want, go dancing, whatever…you get the point. Any of these big or small things you do for yourself is like fuel for your whole body. It keeps you happy and motivated, and more prepared for the bad days…cause no one can escape the bad days. 🙂

I’ve already checked some of my most important wishes, and last weekend I visited another place that I’ve been postponing for quite some time now. London…cloudy, rainy, windy, cold but very beautiful London. When I left home, it was summer, when I arrived in London it felt like a bad joke. Of course it was raining and it was cold. Thank God I had my autumn – winter clothes with me, since no t-shirt saw the light of day there. Besides the weather, which can be an issue for a cold weather hater like myself, London is beautiful and full of pretty much anything you could want: history, incredible museums, any shop you could think about, any kind of food you might want to eat and people from all the nations of the world.

Underneath is London :))

I’ll spare you of all the details of any normal tourist visiting London… yes, I’ve checked all the major attractions and my feet still feel the pain even now.

London’s most desirable accessory:  the UMBRELLA.

London’s most fashionable car: the black cab

London’s most strange street ‘fashion’ aspect: at 10-15  degrees Celsius, you’ll see people wearing from autumn – winter clothes (like me – 3 layers of clothes, including jacket ) to sandals or flip flops and summer dresses. Another cute aspect is that you can actually distinct from which part of the world people come from, by the thickness of their outfits.  I guess you can imagine the Spanish and the Italians :))…

So, this is one of the things I did for my soul last month. It was quite a big one, and I’ll try to write about the things that I do for myself each month, and post photos under the #luvyoursoul hashtag. I want to do that as a challenge to not forget about my soul and celebrate even the little things that make me happy.  If you want to do that too, you can use #luvyoursoul with your photos/posts and, like that, maybe more and more people will be inspired to do the same.

Have many #luvyoursoul moments,
